Train To Busan GIF - Train To Busan - Discover & Share GIFs

This course explores a contemporary understanding of the horror genre, expressing global anxieties pertaining to housing, shelter, climate, media and mass control, pandemics and biohazards, social psychosis, and out-of-control capitalism and consumerism. The course focuses on the nature of dwelling or inhabiting a domestic space, a social space, a cultural space, and the global habitat in a variety of well-known horror films. The films will show its protagonists unsettled, dislocated, or not at home in one way or another. We will try to understand these scenarios of haunted spaces and living locations both as forms of entertainment and expressions of symptoms of social decline and decay. We will also consider the art and expertise of filmmaking that went into the production of these films, particularly production design, editing, and cinematography. Films in the first part of the semester, focusing more on US cinema, will include The Lighthouse (2019), Candyman (1992), Night of the Living Dead (1968), The Shining (1980), The Exorcist (1973), Silence of the Lambs  (1991), Hereditary (2018), Get Out (2017), and Midsommar  (2019). Films in the second part of the semester will extend to foreign films such as The Host (2006), Oldboy (2003), 28 Days Later (2002), Train to Busan (2016), and the more comedic films An American Werewolf in London (1981) and What We Do in the Shadows (2014). Note: Students who have difficulties with horror films due to its graphic depiction of violence should not enroll in this class.

We will examine basic theories of film and their relationship to the practice of “close analysis.” How do film theorists discuss the experience of film, spectatorship, apparatus, and production in a variety of theoretical contexts and explore major film theories such as those of formalism, realism, auteurism, star/celebrity culture, gender, psychoanalysis, genre, race, cultural and media studies? Theories are meant to provide students with a vocabulary for close analysis of film and will stress the many ways of seeing and experiencing film. Our primary responsibility will be finding ways to speak and write about film and its significance as a complex aesthetic and social sign. Film excerpts, particularly those discussed in the assigned texts, will be screened and discussed in class.
